More about the AML Lab
The Advanced Manufacturing Laboratory (AML) supports our research into computer-aided geometric design and manufacturing, geometric modeling, visualization, and geometric computing algorithms.
Two Sun SparcStation-20 Model 51's in the AML serve as the gateway from the
network of workstation computers to the equipment in the AML. Control
programs for the CNC machines, generated algorithmically from geometric or
process plan models, are downloaded from the workstations via serial lines
to the program memories of the machines.
A Sun Sparc-10 workstation in the adjacent Remote Sensing and Imaging
Laboratory also supports a Puma robot, video capture/vision sytem, and a
Digibotix 3D laser ditigizer, allowing co-research in robotics and vision
algorithms for manufacturing functions such as inspection and assembly.
